Sore Thumb

It’s been forever, I know! School (work) and the house have completely taken over my life, but now I break to give everyone an update on the big green house- and it is ALL green now!

Last August my dad had planned on painting the back portion of our house that stuck out like a sore thumb because it had only been primed thus far. That was until we got our big red tag. Jacob and I were worried that the county would be upset at us if we painted the laundry area since they told us to stop all work on it. So we wait. And waited. And waited. Until I finally got to pick up the permits for our house (yes, we have the permits! they are just not finalized yet, so the red tag remains). I asked the permit guy I was talking to if we could paint and he said “Sure, why not?” That was back in February, so we had to still wait until the weather was nice and sunny. That nice and sunny weather is finally here, so my dad has spent the past few weekends painting the house and it looks AMAZING! No more sore thumb, and a big green house once again!
